WORLD SERIES OF POKER® RELEASES THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED 2022-2023 CIRCUIT SCHEDULE

 

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is excited to announce the return of its WSOP Circuit (WSOP-C). The highly anticipated regional poker tour returns for its 19th season beginning Wednesday, July 19 at Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma immediately following the conclusion of the 2023 World Series of Poker tournament in Las Vegas. 25 stops have been scheduled to date, with additional dates to be announced later this July on WSOP .com.

The highly coveted $1 million freeroll will return featuring a similar format as the 2022-23 season. Kicking off with the Choctaw Circuit Event, official WSOP gold ring winners from either the live or online circuit events through May 2024 will qualify for the invitation-only “Tournament of Champions” event during the 2024 World Series of Poker tournament at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas.

“We are on pace to make history with the largest WSOP of all time this year and have already hosted ten record-breaking events so far at the 2023 WSOP,” said Senior Vice President and Executive Director of the World Series of Poker, Ty Stewart. “As the excitement around the game of poker continues to grow exponentially, we expect this energy to roll into the WSOP Circuit the summer, setting some records along the way as well.”

While many venues will be familiar during the 2022-23 season, there will be one new stop at the Graton Casino in Rohnert Park, California, and another new stop at a Caesars Entertainment destination, Horseshoe Hammond, in Hammond, Indiana on Oct. 5-16, 2023.

Harrah’s Cherokee will be WSOP-C’s second stop beginning on Thursday, Aug. 3 with the tour continuing virtually nonstop until the season-culminating stop at Caesars Southern Indiana on Thursday, May 9-20, 2024.

Most WSOP-C stops will begin on Thursdays, with the four-day Main Events beginning on the second Friday of the tournament. Each stop is encouraged to add Seniors and Ladies events, where the winners will qualify to participate in the “Tournament of Champions” in Las Vegas. WSOP-C stops will feature standardized tournament structures and payouts, ensuring players traveling to multiple stops will be treated in a consistent manner at each event, barring any regulatory or local law differences. All stops will release their series’ event schedules upon approval by their local regulatory body, with the guarantee that every stop will offer at least a dozen official WSOP gold ring events starting at a $250 buy-in level and will include a $1,700 Main Event. WSOP Online Circuit events on WSOP .COM will be scheduled monthly.

WSOP-C schedules are subject to change and the WSOP reserves the right to make changes to all events related to the WSOP-C at any time.
